Your Best Fertility Buddy
Seedling's goal is to make the journey easier for the 1.3 billion people having a tough time getting pregnant. Managing all the meds, doses, and doctor's visits can be super overwhelming. We steps in to help by keeping everything in one spot - so no more messing up schedules or feeling alone in their fertility journey.


Co Founder
As one of the main people in founding team, I've been right there making decisions and teaming up with Lina and Dani to pull our ideas into one place. Then, I took the lead on creating our brand and product. I also had a hand in defining our MVP and designed for both iOS and Android apps. While Dani's been tackling the front-end coding, I've been looking after the marketing side of things, getting deep into user testing, and taking charge of getting our marketing website off the ground.

We've all really put our hearts into Seedling, and it's been great for both of us. It's also helped me grow a lot. I can't wait to see how Seedling and I can both grow and do well together.

Problem

Based on 17 detailed survey responses and 3 interviews, we figure out when people going through fertility treatments, keeping track of all the different medications, doses, and appointment schedules can be really complicated and stressful. This can lead to mistakes with medication schedules, less effective treatments, and more emotional stress.

Lack of guidance

Often face a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment.

Complexity of managing

lead to confusion or mistakes in medication or treatment

Feel stressful

Face uncertainty and high stakes alone

Project Goal

We got three big pieces of feedback from users that really got us thinking. To make sure we're supporting everyone from start to finish, we're planning to roll out some cool stuff later on. This includes things like a place for users to connect, topic-specific articles and podcasts, even a feature for get their partners involved as well. We aim to build the new eco-system to help everyone in fertility journey. Right now, though, we're focusing on tracking & reminder features for our first MVP release.

Solution for our iOS MVP version

For our MVP version, we've made sure user can keep track of all their daily tasks easily right off the bat. This way, they've got a handy reminder to help sort out all those complicated to-dos. We did this because we know how easy it is to get swamped by everything you've got to do. With our app, we're giving user a little extra help to make things less stressful when they kick off the fertility journey.

Research

In previous research, we got 17 detailed survey responses for main 15 questions that lead to the core experience in fertility and 3 interviews from user about 35-44 years old. Alongside this, we engaged in secondary research, which included reviewing feedback about our competitor and the product user commonly use. This approach us to build a comprehensive understanding of our users' needs.
